If you’re watching this tutorial, you’re probably experiencing either tingling, burning, or numbness in your feet and ankles. Often, this begins with the forefoot and extends up to the ankles in a stocking effect. You may also be experiencing shooting pains and loss of balance. If so, you have a condition we call peripheral neuropathy. Hello, my name is Dr. Robert Parker, cofounder and fellow of the Association of Extremity Nerve Surgeons. I have special training by Johns Hopkins’ Lee Dellen in nerve surgery for over a decade now. Did you know that there are over a hundred different kinds of peripheral neuropathies,.
And you may be prone to developing this condition, especially if you’re diabetic In my practice I will first perform an extensive and thorough lower extremity history and physical examination. We may perform a simple skin biopsy, which can help us determine whether you have a small fiber neruopathy or a large fiber neuropathy. We may perform a spectrocell test to determine if you have a deficiency which allows us to better diagnose and effectively treat your condition. We have, what call, our Star Wars Treatments , including the new robotic MLS.
